Optimized to deliver flexible, high-performance IP and Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) services in applications such as provider edge, high-end customer premises equipment (CPE), and enterprise Internet gateway routers, the Cisco® 7304 Router offers an excellent price/performance ratio in a compact form factor with rich IP services and comprehensive interface options. Today's applications require that the Cisco 7304 offer higher interface density for more scalable solution deployment, especially when enabling redundant routing engine configurations for resilient network service. To satisfy customers' requirements for increased density and modularity, as well as providing investment protection to the next-generation interfaces, Cisco Systems® offers SPA support on the 7304 Router with the Cisco 7304 SPA MSC.
The Cisco 7304 SPA MSC is designed to enable two single-height SPAs in one line-card slot of the Cisco 7304. This greatly extends the port density on the current Cisco 7304 chassis and offers customers flexible interface deployment options making the Cisco 7304 Router an ideal platform for service provider or enterprise customers who need high-density aggregation at the edge with a small footprint.
The Cisco 7304 SPA MSC offers:
• Increased interface density and modularity through SPAs for the Cisco 7304 Router
• Ability to add new interfaces such as modular Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet
• Investment protection for customers deploying next-generation interfaces
